I would think one could pick up a little knowledge there even if they just listened...

As Yogi said, you can observe a lot by just watching. (I want to thank the people who made this day necessary.)

Austria doesn’t call their language “Austrian”, they call it GERMAN... Not “Austrian” German, either... Just GERMAN. The person whose answer he is relying on at WIKI Answers thinks Antarctica recently had a name change, and that “Eleventh” has 4 syllables...

Why are you insisting on pushing a fact that you’ve been clearly shown now is wrong?

Other contributors have said "What language do they speak in austria?" is the same question as "Did Jesus speak the same language that Armenians speak?". If you believe that these are not asking the same thing and should be answered differently, click here.

Yep. I end up deleting ost of my posts here and elsewhere when I realize they are dumber than normal ;) OBAMA will be a gift to comics, if they’re not afraid of the race-baiters.

Obama’s problem is that he only speaks the “Mutha” language.

But he can read “Teleprompter” fluently.

WIKI is probably the WORST thing that has ever happened for anyone interested in true FACTS. The information found on WIKI (most times) simply reflects the sad, sad, state of education.

Wiki's OK when it's not used as a primary source -- especially if the subject bears even remotely on the political. Generally, you had best get four or five other sources to corroborate Wiki before you can trust it.

My best friend who went with me and others to W Germany yrs back, later went on to Austria, since they spoke Germanthere too. MAYBE I know more than the average Joe about Austrian not being a language, but surely the media could have picked it up UNLESS they zone out listening to the Obama pontificate. He is VERY boring.

And the reporters from Pravda West all ignore his screw ups. If it had been a republican, they would be spinning his stupidity every five minutes with TV adds. But, of course, this is our Premier who thinks there are 57 states, bows to his Muzzie king in Saudi. Yup, this is our guy. Must not have had his teleprompter.

Definitely agree with that... The links at the bottom of the entries, are usually a good place to start research as well. But, relying on anything like “WikiANswers” or “YahooAnswers”, or any of the like, IMHO, is reckless, and lazy...

Like you said, if it concerns politics — AT ALL — chances are the information you read there (besides hard bio facts - DOB, etc...) are completely twisted and biased.

I riddled this to my exchange student who spoke four languages:

What do you call a person who speaks 3 languages?

Tri-lingual.

Two languages?

Bi-lingual

One language?

American

Just to let you know... I’ve looked at a bunch of your past posts over the last few years (all on one page). I find your selection of topics to comment on very interesting... And, some of your comments interesting as well. [PETA, Animal Issues, Libby, Plame... and now defending Obama... VERY interesting...]

Any member of Wiki can edit those answers. An Obamabot put an incorrect answer (lied) to cover for Obama. They think they are so clever and just because they tell a lie, it makes it true. Of course, they count on people being too dumb to know the difference,

That's pretty funny. I suppose a corollary is a person who doesn't know the meaning of words in their own language = democrat. They don't know words have meanings, so they just want to redefine the meaning of words to suit their momentary desires. (eg marriage).

0 thinks there are 57 states, 500 million Americans, that Canada has a “president,” and that Austrian is a language.

Obama is a complete clown without his teleprompter and whoever actually writes his speeches.

Sure did — check the note at the bottom — I have the same user name there, and here, now. :)

I also searched for another question on this topic (with proper grammer) and added information to that answer.

If anyone is a member there - recommending me might be nice or something as these are my first answers there. :)
